About Dr. Liam Ó Droma, B.D.S., N.U.I. - Dublin

We at Radharc on Oileain Dental Cosmetic Centre located in the picturesque seaside village of Howth in Co.Dublin close to DART station (it's only a 5 minute walk!) and bus stop (there's one right outside the door) would like to extend you a very warm cead míle failte

IMPLANTS   We generally use a high quality German system of implants called Champion ( ) which involves the MIMI Implant procedure. This means that it is a very gentle experience for the patient involving little or no surgery.And also, depending on suitability, we use high quality Ankylos or Bicon implants.  Dr. Liam has undertaken numerous courses over the years which include achieving a Post Graduate Certificate in Implant Dentistry from Warwick University. He is also a full member of the Association of Dental Implantlogy (A.D.I.). In order to make this very valuable treatment more cost accessible, the total cost of providing the implant including the crowns is €1,700 for the vast majority of cases.

Overdentures with implants is a highly effective  and cost effective way of restoring big edentulous gaps particularly recommended to retain, and really stabilize that loose lower denture and crucially furthermore halt the bone resorption. This latter factor means that it is medically recommended for overall health, and hence fundable in part by the V.H.I. Our fee for an implant retained lower denture with two implants starts from €970.

ORTHODONTICS   Generally, modern options revolve around the speedy and highly effective Damon system. This is a fixed system which can also use clear brackets and moves not only the teeth orthodontcally, but also aesthetically improves the facial structure i.e. Orthopedics.  We also offer as a treatment option, where suitable the clear Invisalign System, and other options such as the Inman Aligner for very rapid alignment of anterior teeth (3 – 6 months).

VENEERS/CROWNS    Full crowing of teeth has long been a treatment option however, veneering the facial surface of teeth by bonding on fine porcelain veneers to improve the aesthetics is a modern development. This is a  facet of dental cosmetics in which Dr. Ó Droma has extensive experience- since they first became available in 1985 he's provided thousands of veneers  for satisfied patients. Our very best quality called Chameleon Fortress veneers are the most aesthetic and cost €700 each, but we also do excellent Da Vinci type ones for €570 each. They all come with a solid 5 year guarantee against chipping and cracking. We can of course negotiate on that figure for multiple teeth.

TOOTH WHITENING  In addition to the usual take home whitening we do in-house–Rod Kurthy Whitening Deep Bleaching – ( )  and instant whitening using the latest and safest (i.e. no damaging U.V.) power whitening laser machine from Germany called Beyond Plus

FACIAL TREATMENTS  We do various facial skin care treatment using various types of dermal fillers and muscle relaxant solution that eliminates that ‘furrowed brow’!

OTHER TREATMENTS  Other treatments include endodontics/root canal treatment for front and back teeth, white fillings, bridgework, dentures of various types, children’s dentistry including orthodontics, sleep aponea treatment, oral surgery incl. wisdom tooth extractions and of course all routine treatments incl. hygienist's treatment. 

APPOINTMENTS   The next step is up to you - if you'd like to arrange an initial FREE consultation appointment just contact us and we will be happy to arrange a convenient appointment for you. To accommodate our patients we work one late evening on Monday and most Saturday mornings

"Very pleased"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 18 Jan 2011 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment? I was very pleased with the treatment. I went for a check up as I had not been to a dentist in a very long time. I was very afraid that I would be told that I needed various treatments that I did not actually need so I would have to pay out money. However, I should not have worried. This was not the case at all. I was told my mouth was very healthy and all I needed was a cleaning and scaling. This, along with the check-up was very reasonably priced.
Would you recommend the clinic? The staff were all very friendly and I felt at ease. Yes, I would recommend this clinic and have already done so to a family member.
Would you return for further treatment? Yes. I have booked an appointment for a check up for next year.

"The price was fair and the doctors were professional"

Treatment Received: Teeth Cleaning
I went to Dr. Liam's Clinic to have a teeth whitening appointment and while I was happy with the procedure and how it was carried out, I was not very impressed with the hygiene standards of the clinic.

The clinic was decent despite the problems with the hygiene, they gave a reasonable price that I thought was fair and the doctors were professional and did what I needed them to do.

"Professional treatment care received"
50%Reviewed 30 Mar 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Orthodontist Consultation
I was looking for some advice regarding my issue at an orthodontist due to how complex my problem was. I then booked a consultation at this clinic which ended up being a teeth cleaning session as the Doctor advised it was the better option. He (Doctor) was good at what he was doing, very professional, friendly and nice.

I was charged at a regular price which wasn't too alarming. I was quite surprised about the "70's vintage look" his building had, inside and out. I feel they could modernize the place but other than that they did a good job.

"Excellent results"
100%Reviewed 06 Jan 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
My son has been having orthodontic treatment with Dr Ó Droma for the last year with excellent results. He (as well as his assistant) is very kind and my son has always been happy to go for checkups, turning / wearing his appliance / retainer. We are nearing the end of the process, and I'm so glad we didn't wait until he was older as we originally considered.

When I needed a crown done at short notice, I was seen quickly. Surprisingly (I am a very nervous patient), I found the visit not traumatic in the least, and I will have all future work done here.

As far as value - for the quality of work and products used, I believe this is very good value.
I initially chose the practice because the prices seemed lower than others in the area. For my son, the free consultation was good as it gave a better idea of what was needed and what it would cost. It didn't feel as if additional treatments would be suggested just for more profit.

The practice doesn't look as swanky as many others in the area, but when it comes down to what is needed (plus new and modern equipment), this doesn't stand back in the least.

"Always felt like I was making progress."
100%Reviewed 25 Sep 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Orthodontic Retainer
I had a narrow palate with a cross-bite, and Liam first widened the palate with an expander and then the teeth were aligned with clear retainers. It was done over the course of a year, and I always felt like I was making progress. Liam is very knowledgeable and you feel like you're in good hands.

The treatment was first class, and the plan was explained clearly as were any questions I had along the way. I also felt comfortable asking any questions that I had in relation to the treatment. All of the staff are also very friendly and helpful.

"Made me feel at ease."
100%Reviewed 01 Sep 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received:
I went to see Dr. Liam Ó Droma. To cut a long story short, I'm terrified of dentists, but he is a true gent and made me feel at ease. I'm starting treatment next week at a very reasonable cost. While still a bit nervous I know he will make me very calm.

Easier than I thought I would be as petrified when I go to see him next. He also gave me a tablet which he said will calm me down; he is also very reasonable when it comes to quotes. Some of the other quotes I got were outlandish.
